There are no silly questions Celia. I either roll the still wet but already stiff piece in a bucket full of sand, or I spray water on the piece, take a handful of sand or marble powder or whatever and throw it at the piece. (You want to do that on the floor in the basement, not in the kitchen! Just kidding). I then either paddle the sand into the clay or I push it in lightly with the ball of my thumb. I also sometimes wet a sponge, push it into the sand and apply the wet sand on the greenware by means of the sponge. (You hold the sponge under streaming water and then you squeeze most of the water out again. You don't want to have a sponge thats too wet!).

I have seen a version of this before: lets say 1500BC or so. The detailing draws the eye into the piece. Proportion is the hardest part when doing this kind of piece: but you did it well- very nice.
